Juno Captures Great Planetary Storm On Jupiter

NASA’s Juno spacecraft flew directly over the Jupiter's "Great Red Spot" on Monday, July 10. It succeeded to approach the monster storm and make a close up from a distance of just 9,000 kilometers. As the raw images are not so impressive,

Citizen Astronomer Reveals Jupiter’s ‘Face’ Caught By JunoCam

This image, processed by citizen scientist Jason Major, is titled “Jovey McJupiterface,” Joinfo.com reports with reference to NASA. Major received the Jupiter’s ‘face’ by rotating the image 180 degrees and orienting it from south up. Two white oval storms turn into eyeballs,

Juno shows stunning images of Jupiter

Early science results from NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter portray the largest planet in our solar system as a complex, gigantic, turbulent world, with Earth-sized polar cyclones, plunging storm systems that travel deep into the heart of the gas giant, and

Juno shows stunning image of storms on Jupiter’s south pole

Oval storms dot the cloudscape. Approaching the pole, the organized turbulence of Jupiter’s belts and zones transitions into clusters of unorganized filamentary structures, streams of air that resemble giant tangled strings. According to NASA, the image was taken on Dec. 11, 2016

Juno Captures Jupiter Cloudscape in High Resolution

Juno spacecraft captured this image with its JunoCam citizen science instrument when the spacecraft was a mere 5,400 miles (8,700 kilometers) above Jupiter’s cloudtops on Dec. 11, 2016 at 9:14 a.m. PT (12:14 p.m. ET). Citizen scientist Sergey Dushkin produced the sublime

Juno spacecraft captures rotating storm on Jupiter

NASA's Juno spacecraft has caught on camera the seventh of eight features forming a ‘string of pearls’ on Jupiter -- massive counterclockwise rotating storms that appear as white ovals in the gas giant's southern hemisphere, NASA reports. Since 1986, these white ovals

Making history: Juno probe enters Jupiter’s orbit

After an almost five-year journey to the solar system’s largest planet, NASA's Juno spacecraft successfully entered Jupiter’s orbit during a 35-minute engine burn. Confirmation that the burn had completed was received on Earth at 8:53 p.m. PDT (11:53 p.m. EDT) Monday, July

NASA’s Juno Spacecraft Closing in on Jupiter

"We have over five years of spaceflight experience and only 10 days to Jupiter orbit insertion," said Rick Nybakken, Juno project manager from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. "It is a great feeling to put all the interplanetary space
